Fatty Fish Ratings and Reviews
Mostly Japanese cuisine with a creative flair, all dishes were tasty and nicely prepared and presented. Neighborhood feel, casual and comfortable. Gyoza excellent. Waiter was not very well schooled in the menu or what the bar could provide, and it took a bit longer than it should have to get drinks brought to the table, but the entries came promptly after we finished the apps. Prices very reasonable.
We had the unlimited mimosas with 2 entrees. The presentation, proportions and the quality of the food was great. The heated outdoor patio enclosed with its international cafe style ambience was welcoming. The service was exceptional our mimosas were always topped off ,never left thirsty..
Sat us in the back patio room that was very cold. Asked to turn on the heat they did its on. Poor table with a planter literally with dying plants poking me in the head and said we want to sit inside. They said they could but moved us one table over! There was no one in the restaurant at 6 and wouldt accommodate us
Had been to this restaurant last year and the food was exceptional. We were so enthusiastic to repeat the experience so came back again with a group of 7. The food was just good this time. Seemed that the dishes were not as piping hot and fresh flavored as last time. Also annoyed that the big table was not so stable - a metal table in the back garden - and tilted a bit that made for awkward eating. All said though the staff is well-meaning and the food is much better than at many other fusion type places.
On the whole, Fatty Fish is a good choice. The staff are friendly and patient, the menu is varied. I had the Teriyaki Bento box with salmon. The salmon was indifferent to poor, (let's say that it had not been caught yesterday), and I left half of it; but this disappointment was made up for by the rest of the bento box which was really very good. Next time, I will avoid fish here, which is a bit of a shame in a restaurant called Fatty Fish - but hey, you are in New York, and it isn't easy to have a good fish meal without paying huge prices. I'll go back.
Fatty fish is such a gem. The food is fresh and the waiters are so nice. Their pineapple fried rice and cassava fries. The decor is very rustic modern, like something out of a movie honestly. It is set up in a hallway type look after you enter, then there is a dining room in the back. This is also attached to another dining room separated by a curtain. Both spaces are nice but if it is cold outside, I recommend the table by the wall in the first dining room on your right hand side, just before you enter the other dining room...the heater is attached there and it is super warm. The staff is so kind and friendly and is always ready to refill your drink or water. I'm definitely going back there sooner, rather than later.
This was a very enjoyable evening. The appetizers (sushi pizza and shishito peppers with bacon) were both excellent. The vegetarian ramen dish and the paella were both good as well, although the paella could have been hotter in temperature. Both dishes lacked an intensity of flavor that was enhanced by spicy paste, although the extra charge for that addition is truly inappropriate. Sake was reasonably priced and the service was very attentive, but at times water would be served or dishes removed without regard to interfering with our conversation or eating. There are many dishes on this interesting menu that will be tried on another visit.
The sushi pizza was delicious. We had the truffle tempura portobella mushrooms and I was disappointed. I could not taste the truffle. I had the bento box with chicken and it came cold but my sister had the ramen and my husband the salmon an they said they were delicious.
They should fill the front first because walking into an empty restaurant was disconcerting. Also they should keep large families with lots of small children in corner areas not middle of the restaurant. Other than that, the food was amazing, service was more than perfect, and the price would have been good even without a Groupon. If the entire ambiance was how the porch looked (we were just outside the porch area, no seats on porch) it would have been wonderful. We would consider going again. 5 stars for food and service. 5 for BYOB. 4.5 for price and food creativity (4 for non-Groupon). 3 for ambiance. Overall 4.25
There are so few good restaurants in the "hood", thank goodness for Fatty Fish! It's a real keeper. Not only is the fish delish, but the meat and veggie dishes are as well. Not only is Fatty Fish our go to local restaurant, but we had a family reunion brunch there recently. Chef Roy went out of his way to make it a wonderful, delicious event.
